3rd Cluster Collaboration Workshop
ASPICE organized its 3rd Cluster Collaboration Workshop within the framework of the international conference SPIE 2014 Photonics Europe, on April 15th-16th at
Brussels, Belgium. This niche event provided targeted matchmaking services to cluster managers and their member SMEs interested in collaboration in specific
Horizon2020 calls, related to "In-vivo Medical Imaging Technologies", "Food Safety", and "Improvement of the Air Quality and
Reduction of the Carbon Footprint of European Cities". Cluster organizations had an opportunity to participate at round table discussions moderated by ASPICE
project members for building new value chains for the above priorities and promote matchmaking.
